This year, the annual Hawai’i Tourism Conference was held at the Honolulu Convention Center from August 6-7. The UH Hilo Conference Center attended with staff representation from Hawaiian EDventure, our edu-tourism offices as well as our conferencing department.
The metaphors of cultural authenticity, economic sustainability, and the preservation of natural resources rang clear and true through the duration of the conference; Live Koa, Kukui and Kalo decorated the conference rooms, and an indigenous plant display provided by the Kaua’i Rare Plant Conservation was a symbolic reminder of the State’s intent and mission to “strategically manage Hawai’i tourism in a sustainable manner…”
HTA directly addressed the dire situation of Hawai’i's economy, offering insightful messages covering topics ranging from the Korean and Chinese markets and visitor statistics to Hawai’i's airlines industry.
Keynote speakers included: Thomas K. Kaulukukui, Jr., Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Queen Lili’uokalani Children’s Centers and Ted Bush, Waikiki Beach Boy, President, Waikiki Beach Services.

I’d like to express my sincere appreciation for all the hard work and dedication by UH Hilo’s ohana for another beautiful and memorable commencement exercise. I think that President McClain, Regents Dahilig and Hapai, and keynote speaker Connie Lau were impressed with the aloha and joy we share with the students and their accomplishments that day.
I’d especially like to recognize Judith Fox-Goldstein and the staff of the Conference Center for their many months of work to coordinate this event. It takes months and a lot of hours to make sure every detail is planned and taken care of.
With so much involvement by so many, UH Hilo’s commencement exercise went very well.
Please know that everyone appreciates the memorable ceremony and your efforts. Mahalo to all for your kokua!

This year’s Onizuka Science Day kicked off in the UHH Theatre. With the booming soundtrack of Star Trek, Final Frontier, heavy smoke, and a dazzling light effect, the Klingon Kurn, Captain of the Imperial Klingon Vessel HecK Tar, Klingon Defense Force, saluted the participants of the 8th annual event.
Chancellor Rose Tseng managed to attend despite a hectic schedule, and prior engagements at Hogwarts University.
Approximately 570 students in grades 4-12, and their parents registered to participate in the opening ceremonies featuring keynote speaker, Astronaut Barbara Morgan, who spent over 12 days in outer space aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor, and the International Space Station.
Morgan was selected as the backup candidate for the NASA Teacher in Space Program on July 19, 1985. From September 1985 to January 1986, Morgan trained with Christa McAuliffe and the Challenger crew at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas. Following the Challenger accident, Morgan assumed the duties of Teacher in Space Designee. http://www.jsc.nasa.gov/Bios/htmlbios/morgan.html
Barbara’s presentation set the stage for a day of over 21 engaging, interactive workshops with titles from “Wooly Magma Felted Earth” to “Food Safety: Growing your own Non-Circulating Hydroponic Lettuce.”
Mahalo to all of the organizers and volunteers who dedicated their resources to putting on another incredible event for the youth of the Big Island!
